Each of the 72 guest suites at ski-in/ski-out Beaver Creek Lodge, conveniently located at the base of the ski mountain, has a fireplace as well as a kitchenette with mini-fridge, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker, plus dishes and glassware for four. The one-bedroom suites have doors that close (privacy for adults!) and living areas with pull-out sleeper sofas, so a family of four can fit comfortably here. If you’re willing to share the bedroom with your kiddos, there are some double queen-bedded suites, as well. Still more room? Consider one of the three-bedroom condos. The lodge has a heated outdoor pool and hot tub and Rocks Modern Grill — with its great outdoor patio and fire pits — serves breakfast and dinner.

We had a very poor experience at this hotel:
Elite benefits - a $12 credit (total for both people) in the restaurant
Hotel voluntarily disclosed that they only had 8 rooms booked but instead of being offered an upgrade we were placed next to construction. Despite the GM's response to a prior review, titanium members rooms do not include water. The request for a 4:00 check out was also refused.
I'm biased as I'm opposed to resort fees in general but if you're going to charge a $50 per night resort fee, you better be a resort. The pool was small and dirty and as other reviewers mention the sauna / steam rooms were moldy and broken and the gym at a residence inn is better. The hot chocolate and wine weren't offered due to low occupancy (even though the charge includes them). This is a mediocre hotel in a resort location.
The location is fantastic and the rooms themselves are quite nice. Many aspects of the room had been remodeled but at this point the bathtub had not been and it was pretty moldy and gross. The cabinets had also seen better days. The rest of the hotel feels very tired but I understand there is currently a remodel in place. How do I know this?
Because the valet accidentally drove our car into the low clearance sign for the parking garage damaging the box/rails. No big deal. Accidents happen. The valet was very nice and apologetic. But after that everything went downhill. There was no supervisor on site but the woman we spoke with notified the GM. The GM left me a voicemail the next day and the woman at the front desk also followed up, letting us know that the GM would be on site when we returned to the hotel to checkout. When we returned to the hotel the GM was not there. We were told that he was not coming after all and the guy we talked too had the paper work for us but otherwise had no idea what would happen next. The only thing he could tell us was that the GM would call us the next day. He didn't. He didn't call the day after that either. The day after that we reached out to him again and got no response. The following day he informed us the insurance would call us within 24 hours. They didn't. We tried the GM again and he said we would hear from the insurance by the end of the week. We didn't. And we still haven't. The GM hasn't responded to anything in almost a week and we can't reach anyone at the hotel since it is closed for a remodel. I can't imagine a worse way to handle this.
My family and I just spent a week in Beaver Creek at the Beaver Creek Lodge. We love that the location of our resort was located in the village and just a short walk to the lifts. We didn’t need a car on this vacation at all which was nice. The resort has an ultra-hip mountain style with beautiful artwork displayed throughout the resort. Our first positive impression of the resort was how Nice EVERYONE who worked at the resort was to us. It’s a very busy season and we were always met with happy people from the front desk, shops and even the general manager introduced himself which made it feel like a happy family working together. At checkin, we received champagne and cookies which was such a special and fun touch to the beginning of the trip! The rooms were spacious. There’s a living room area with a pullout sofa, small refrigerator, microwave and sink so you can stop at a local store to pick up snacks. The separate bedroom was very nice and lit did storage. The reason i didn’t give this a 5 Star was ONLY because if one thing that the resort really needs to change ASAP: the pullout sofa mattress was the most uncomfortable “mattress”. It was really nothing but metal springs and none of us could sleep on it (and I can sleep on just about anything). We purchased a blowup mattress. The resort really needs to update this problem. Other than that, we had an amazing time here and highly recommend it to anyone with families who want to be close to the slopes.
